Top 6 Halloween lighting ideas

Forget about having the brightest house on the block this Halloween — using smart light, you can make your home the spookiest! Bewitch your trick-or-treaters and give your guests a fright by turning your home into a haunted house.


Greet your guests with hair-raising light

Set a ghastly light scene in the Hue app — Blood Moon is perfect for Halloween — to really give trick-or-treaters a fright. Use the scene indoors for your Halloween bash, or use it on your outdoor smart lights to create an unnerving look for the big night.


Want to see a trick? Ask Alexa

Alexa can turn your lights on and off, dim or brighten the room, select a color, or even set a light scene, all with a simple voice command: “Alexa, set my lights to Blood Moon.” 1
